The Chelsea Foundation was crowned winners at the inaugural 32 Borough Cup tournament, winning the Europa League trophy following a penalty shoot-out victory.

In total there was 32 teams taking part in the tournament - one from each borough of London - with Chelsea Foundation chosen to represent Westminster in recognition of our important work in the community there.

It was decided that players from Pimlico Academy - who take part in our Premier League Kicks sessions which is a programme that aims to use the power of football to engage with young people and guide them towards a range of healthy and constructive activities - would be chosen to represent the Foundation.

On route to the final, the Blues beat Lambeth 3-1 before earning a 4-2 semi-final win over Wandsworth to set up a final against Lewisham.

After 90 minutes neither team could break the deadlock but it was our team who would keep their nerve to win the penalty shoot-out and be crowned winners.

Social inclusion co-ordinator at the Chelsea Foundation, Callum Salhotra, said: 'This has been an amazing opportunity for some of our young players from Pimlico Academy.

'They have got to compete against the best players throughout London and it has been important to see the players involved in community engagement and uniting the diverse groups we have in London.

Bobby Kananga, who organised the event, said: 'The reason behind the tournament is to highlight to the youths that they are one and the same people and that gang rivalry needs to stop.

'We want to make London feel fluid with no restrictions on where a young person can travel.'
